XM Sure Connect antenna assembly.

Bought a Xm Radio for the wife and found out her truck doesnt have a tape player for playing the it over the cars speakers. I bought the SureConnect to solve the problem but learned her external antenna is too big for the piece that fit's on it! What do it do now????

You didn't say which type of vehicle your wife drives, so here is a generic answer, Good luck (my wife loves her Sat Radio!)

By the way did you get any reception without the kit?

The SureConnect cables plug into the vehicle dock antenna plug and the XM antenna then plugs into the SureConnect cable. The SureConnect cable cannot be used on a retractable or motorized antenna.

If you cannot use the cable, at all, then I would go to Crutchfield, via the phone or web, as they have good technical advice. You may need a different adapter. Possibly part # 040SA10112.

Xm check atenna connection


If you are getting the same "check antenna" message with two different antennas, it is likely that the tuner itself is the problem. You can get just the mini tuner here:

As far as the two plug connection, there are adapters available. Its likely a dual fakra connection, though I don't know for sure. At any rate, this is one adapter available. (I would call to confirm)

You need a FM direct adapter its plugs in behind the radio in your antenna. the part number is FMDA25its says Siruis but it works for XM.

XM radio is not working. Tries to 'Load' but then says 'no signal'. XM says that I am receiving the signal but Honda says there is no problem. They want to try to replace the antenna for $500 but are...


You best bet - if you can get to the rear of the XM tuner unit, is to temporarily connect a magnetic-mount XM antenna and see if it works. A bad antenna usually says "check antenna" - not loading could be a good antenna with a bad location. I would try the little XM antenna by itself, then go from there. $20 is a lot cheaper than $500. Let me know how it works out.

XM radio reception issues


If you have the magnetic antenna, check it for a little nick on the cable on the outside of the car where water might get in to it. A little water can short the ground and the antenna wire. You also can wash (with lots of water around where the antenna cable is) and see if it happens again, then you will know it not just the weather

Xm radio


Try with a different XM Antenna from a friend or shop if possible to verify whether it's the antenna or the unit itself.
Visually inspect antenna cable and connection at the antenna and the unit and make sure the antenna cable hasn't been damaged.
I would do this before considering other options
Good Luck!

XM RADIO PROGRAMMING


For the Ilo CA3000v, all you need is an XM direct tuner box, Model XMD1000, the cable that came with the Ilo radio, and an RCA cable to connect the two. The RCA jacks and the 8-pin DIN jack on the back of the ILO CA3000v are exclusively used for XM signal translation. You will, of course, need a subscription to XM Satellite radio, but the items listed above cover the extent of the hardware you'll require. The XMD1000 comes with the antenna as well, so no need to worry about that, and all XM features are controlled from the head unit itself
